Se­ri­ous side of com­edy re­u­nion

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE -

THE Doug An­thony All­stars were com­edy su­per­stars un­til Tim Fer­gu­son (pic­tured) un­ex­pect­edly pulled the plug, break­ing the hearts of Paul McDer­mott and Richard Fi­dler.

Years later they dis­cov­ered Tim had Mul­ti­ple Sclero­sis (MS).

The three men put aside their dif­fer­ences to re­unite and live the glory days again – all the while know­ing that time is not on their side.

This two-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries chron­i­cles the story of the bad boys of Aus­tralian com­edy – and for the first time they con­front how Tim’s MS im­pacted on their friend­ships at each step to in­ter­na­tional star­dom. This is also an en­dur­ing love story between Tim and Paul, two of our great­est cre­ative minds with the same con­fronta­tional at­ti­tude they’ve al­ways had.
